A Personal Journey for Renewal and Healing

Ready for a relaxing weekend retreat that nourishes mind, body and spirit? Join us at Art of Living as together we practice the art of letting go.  Along with nurturing yoga and mindfulness practices, learn how we are both the creators and the cure for too much stress in our lives.  Cultivate a sense of inner peace and revisit the path of living life in balance.
Self-exploration is encouraged as you enjoy free time and reconnect with nature, receive a spa treatment, read a book, take a pottery class, or enjoy the simple pleasure of taking a restorative nap.  This weekend affords an opportunity to renew, restore and remember the comfort and ease of reconnecting with the deeper aspects of who you are.
